up with Horton, and the chestnut horse, re

other day In his sun parlor In the Sturte
vant house, reports the New Yort Bun.
The subject of Mr. Sheedy'a discourse waa
money, the hardships of not having It and
the difficulty of gettfng It In theae daya
when the folks who have It take aa few
chances aa possible of losing It.
"1 can tell whether a man has money or
not just by looking at him," said Mr.
Sheedy. "You see a lot of fellows out there
on Broadway laughing and having a real
good time. The chances are there lan't a
dollar in the crowd. If a man had money
he wouldn't be with the crowd. He'd prob
ably be afraid of one of them tryln' to
touch him. Why, In these daya if a man
has money, he won't even laugh at a good
etory. . He'a afraid that if he'a. too genial
you may apring a borrow proposition on
And Mr. Sheedy sighed. "Talkln' of
chancea," said he, 'Til tell you a true story
of the old times that are different from
these. Down at Sheepshead Bay there was
a bookmaker that had a horse running. The
race waa on and it, looked a cinch for the
nag. At the half It was' aecond and catch
ing up to a lighter-weighted horse that waa
" 'Jack,' said the bookmaker to a pal In
bard luck that stood by him, I bet you
$1,000 to a dollar that my horse wins.'
" 'Yes, you will," said bis pal. 'You
know I haven't any money, an' that's the
raison y're Muffin'.' ,
" 'Well.' answered the bookmaker, 'I'll
bet you $1,000 to a pin.'
"The other fellow looked at his coat lapel
and he didn't even have a pin. Then he
happened to glance down on the ground
and picked up what looked like a pin. In a
flash they made the bet. I was stake
holder. "Well, the horse In front managed to
atagger In just In front of the bookmaker's
horse. I waa Just about to pay over the
money when the bookmaker looked at what
we thought was the pin, and he said:
'"Walt; that'a not a pin. It's a needle.'
Ani It waa.
"Say," remarked Mr. Sheedy, "that waa
the closest bet I ever aaw. It waa juat a
case of wlnnin' or losing by a head, or an
eye, juat as you choose to put It."
HUGE CROP OF fOMATOES
Twice as Many Mllllonn of Cases
Canned Last Year Than tho
- Year Before.
Such a demand for canned tomatoea has
arisen that more than double the quantity
put up laat year has been packed In' the
last few months. There have been canned'
for consumption between now and next
summer 9,494,813 cases of tomatoea, or more
than 200,000,000 tins, a case containing two
dozen tins of tomatoes. Last year the
packera only put up 4,618,221 cases.
The American Grocer, which baa been col
lecting figures on this enormous tomato
pack, attributes It In part to the fact that
in the three preceding yeara the amount of
tomatoea put up was abort of the require
ments. The result waa that, for tho first
time In a quarter of a century or more,
stocks were completely exhausted, leaving
the market In Canada as well aa In the
United States ao bare that it forced an
early start thla year on the pack, which
went Into consumption as fast aa It was
Thla put a premium on canned tomatoea.
Every factory bas been worked to lta max
Imam capacity and in spite' of an irregular
crop New , York's, owing to the wet
wcalhor, being almost a total failure the
production Is beyond the usual requirements
and there is a hope of saving a small sup

Maryland has canned the moat tomatoes,
putting up 4,614,282 casea against 1,750.000
last year. Nebraska waa the least produc
tive state. It has auprlied only 3,352 esses.
Authorities on the tomato market aay
that the unusual high purchasing power of
the people, due to the general proaperlty,
baa created an enormous demand for pre
pared foods, and In spite of the higher coat
of tomatoea, the demand Is urgent and in
cessant. So, In spite of the Increased pro
duction. It la not likely that canned toma

CHIEF WHITE GHOST'S HOT ARRAIGNMENT !
He Tells of the Frauds Perpetrated
on the Red Man at the Crow
Creek Asrency In South
WASHINGTON. Feb. 7. (Special.) Tho
officers of the Indian Rights association,
who are hot after crooked Indian agenta on
the various reservations, are growing im
patient at the delays in supplanting the
agenta, against whom charges have been
preferred and proved. To show what ln
luitice Is being done the Indians they have
made public the following appeal from
Chief White Ghost for protection for hU
tribesmen agalnat the frauda perpetrated
on the Crow Creek agency In South Dakota
with the connivance of the agent there.
Chief White Ghost's Appeal.
CROW CREEK AGENCY, Crow Creek,
S. D, Frienda: Let me relate a few of the

us worse by being incompetent, misman
aging our affairs and dtxhoneat. Hince he
became our agvnt he has faHed to control
the Indians and does not enforce the regu

encouraged dancing and allowed obsolete
Indian games and gambling to revive, ao
that our young men lose their money they
get for working. He took us a number of
limes last spring and summer to the town
of Chamberlain (8. D.) for the purpose of
exhibiting my people at tbe. Sunday ex
cursion, for be had the Indians to dance
for the excursionists. And more, he al
lows more wandering and going away from
home than It ha been done for many yeara
past. He permits the Indian trader and
other men to bring many thousand cattle
Into and overun our reservation for grazing
and money making speculation, and will
not adjust damages done t6 the Indians'
crops by these cattle, and will not have
them taken away. These white men leased
here and there a quarter section .of allotted
land, then on the Btrength of that they
would turn their cattle loose upon the res
ervation, and our Indian agent protects
them, and our complaints were not heeded
b him. He allows and encouragee able
bodied Indian men to lease their home
steads to these cattlemen, and in thla way
destroys homes that should be Improved.
Playlns la with Cattlemen.
He let white men winter their cattle last
winter on the reservation on unleased and
tribal lands, and let the beef contractor
keep the key to the government corral,

to be kept over night for shrinkage, thus

not long after appointed aa our judge. He
appoints Incapable, old and crippled white
men and unfit boys to positions In the
school and at the agency. He does not no
tice the fact that the Indian trader em
ployed many white men In his store as
herders upon the reservation, which posi
tion the Indian should have, as stated in
his license. Many of his herders are very
undesirable white young men, who ran
after our women.
Countenancing Immoral Practice.
He protects and allows Immoral charac
ters (whites) and prostitutes to stay on
the reservation and to molest our women
and to corrupt our young men, and will
not send them away when told about them.
But he accuses good people of immoral
practices and tries to get rid of them on
theae grounds. He makes all these bad
people his friends because they try to help
him cover up wrong actions on his part.
He also keeps whisky at his house In a
good supply so Indians have gotten It and
been drunk, and he will not punish white
men and an eighth-breea Indian woman
because these people are his friends and In
volved In many of his doings, although
they hove given whisky to Indians.
When our school opened nearly half of
our children were away with their parents
and many children are not yet In tha
school, although It has been opened nearly
two months. Marjy children are not sent
to school because our agent will not order
thein to go.
An Indian inspector waa here several
weeks ago with a stenographer, took down
most of theae things agalnat the agent In
writing and sent them to the Great Father
more than two monhs ago, and still this
man Is permitted to stay and continue his
work. I am getting old and have waited
long, and I hope before I die to see my
people freed from the hands of Incompe
tent and dlahonest Indian agents. My good
friends, government sometimes makes more
fuss about the length of my fast diminish

with them, I pray that they will treat me
In the same manner. Will the good friends
all over the country not help us to get free
and keep free from this kind of men? Our
spirits are hungry for gmxi men to help us.
